the gop is standing up for the rich what the democrats don't understand is that the hostility towards how much washington end spends that this whole discussion of the last six weeks has been about raising taxes on the wealthy. >> let's say we get a deal and it's short-term spending cuts and people don't have someone to blame because we don't go over the cliff, but the markets don't like it the world economy doesn't like it and ultimately our currency becomes in jeopardy as the currency of the world. >> at this point they will blame the republicans. if you can the american people to choose or dig in what they really want is to end the spending more than raising the tacks. they will accept a tax increase on the wealthiest americans. but an even higher percentage support significant spending cuts. and that's not part of the democratic package, so what i'm saying is that both sides here have a problem with the american people, and it's why congress has an 11% job approval rating. gadhafi had an 17% approval rating, and that's from the people he was killing. >>> how ar

the cliffs for the market or to have a pared down deal that the marnlts don't like. >> they probably have some kind of deal that probably spares the majority of middle-class americans and tax cuts that prevents this sort of chaotic automatic spending cuts and things like that but think in general the markets have lost their patience with the process. i think a failure to come to a deal would be a reminder of what as seen on paper seems obvious. even that is not likely. so i think a small deal is better than no deal, but, you know, as mike said we're heading for another fight just like last summer the summer of 2011 when the debt ceiling was kind of held hostage to this process. >> which industries are really affected? who's going to be hit by this? >> the spending cuts kind of hit all at once. it's probably the defense that's probably the number one industry that gets hit but there's all kinds of unintended and unexplored areas that get affected. for instance what happens to the food prices. it's not part of the fiscal cliff package but there's a farm subsidy bill th

but republicans do not, just one more issue they don't seem to be able to agree on. rebecca and jeff? >> with us now is is the editor of the magazine. what is the immediate impact on january one for most americans? >> the first two things that are going to hit are the payroll tax increase, that will affect almost every working american and we ran some numbers and calculated that for a family with two working parents make being $82,000 a year that could tack another $1,600 on to your yearly tax bill. that's big. the other immediate impact is the end of emergency unemployment benefits so for the most vulnerable americans that have already gone over all the rest of the benefits there's nothing else in the pot. >> what about the expiration of the bush era tax cuts? >> for the same family i spoke about, if all of those go through that's $2,600 a year extra on your tax bill. >> so much of the debate has focused on the tax issue but spending is a huge portion of this and there are automatic spending cuts also in place. >> that's right, and those go through all kinds of social pr

an artificial arm and hand that are amazingly human. but that's not the breakthrough. we don't use that word very often, because it's overused. but when you see how they have connected this robotic limb to a human brain, you'll understand why we made the exception. to take this ultimate step, they had to find a person willing to have brain surgery to explore new frontiers of what it is to be human. that person would have to be an explorer with desperate need, remarkable courage, and maybe most of all, a mind that is game. the person they chose is jan scheuermann, a pittsburgh mother of two and writer, with a mind nimble enough to match wits on the "wheel of fortune" in 1995. >> jan scheuermann: i'm going to solve the puzzle. "too cute for words." >> yes!

in the hospital for at least 48 hours? >> well, that depends on the answers to a lot of questions that we don't know. i am affiliated with columbia. i haven't spoken to any of the doctors who are taking care of the secretary. but here are some of the things that are running through my head. it's unusual for somebody who's had a blow to the head to get blood thinners. the reason is when somebody falls and hits their head you're worried about bleeding into the skull, into the brain, like natasha richardson had. so the last thing you would want to do is thin their blood. so trying to figure out what could have happened here. she had some sort of concussion two to three weeks ago she fell and hit her head. at that point i'm sure they did some kind of brain imaging, a c.a.t. scan for mri to the head. at that point she must have had no bleeding or so little they were able to observe her outside. in the last few days she had maybe symptoms or routine c.a.t. scan or routine mri, and they saw a clot. this clot would have to be inside the brain tissue in one of the blood vessels. it

to shield the american people from the true cost of government, we really don't have any constituency here to help reduce spending because we have not dealt with that issue, there's been no progress on the entitlement spending this is unfortunately going to carry on to the debt ceiling debate and what that means is every american is going to be harmed because the economy is not going to be what it should be. so because we have lacked the courage to face up to deal with these issues we here in washington are going to hurt the american economy we're going to hurt americans at every level, and to me it's just a travesty that we've not been willing to deal with this issue when for the last two years, jeff we have known this time is coming. no congress has been more prepared to deal with this issue than us. >> senator, do you think progress is going to come from this meeting this afternoon? let me ask you about that. >> well here probably the worst case scenario will come out of this meeting today and that is we will kick the can down the road, jeff we'll do some small d
